Fall colors paddle

One thing I missed growing up in California was the colors of fall, so being in Utah to watch the trees make their beautiful transitions is a real treat. Here are a few shots that I took with my waterproof Olympus Tough camera. Another treat was actually seeing a beaver entering its elaborate den.

Grand Tetons

After spending some time in Idaho and admiring the Grand Tetons from afar (albeit through heavy smoke from wildfires burning throughout Idaho), we decided to go see them up close.

I was disappointed that we didn’t have our bikes with us, because it looks like there is a very extensive network of bike trails in the park. Here are a couple a shots from the day.

Statue of Liberty on a stormy day

New York City in six hours or less

I didn’t feel that our East Coast run for 2015 would be complete without a trip to NYC. Having been raised in upstate New York, Terry had never visited the city and had no desire to. But I cajoled him into going, and I think it was worthwhile, although he promptly professed that he never wanted to go there again. So alas, if I want to experience more of NYC than just the six hours that our tour guide afforded us I will need to go without him.

Gulf Coast RV Resort

We have a few days to kill between monthly stays, so we stopped for three days at Gulf Coast RV Resort in Beaumont, Texas. It’s a very nice RV park with concrete and grass, large pull-throughs, easy access from I-10 and a special stay two nights, get the third night free deal. And they offer a free breakfast in the morning, which is a feature that I have never seen before. Verizon and AT&T seem to work well.

Port Aransas for two months

Truck and trailer on the ferry to Port Aransas

We got to our not-so-deserted island today where we will stay for two months at Marina Beach RV Park in Port Aransas, Texas. We stayed here back in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that we had to come back. Our RV park is right across the street from the harbor, so we can walk there as often as we want to see the wildlife (both fish and human).
